Make a holiday rental gite or chateau in Tarn, France your home away from home

Tarn, a mountainous department of south west France, is situated in the Midi-Pyrenees province. Tarn is a glorious region of rural France, where the pace of life is leisurely, the culture is strong and the scenery is green and peaceful, broken only by fortified medieval towns and impressive fairytale Tarn chateaux. Holiday rental chateaus in Tarn are perfect for family holiday, extended family reunions and special occasions due to their size, space and grandeur, all at hugely good value.

Things to do on holiday in Tarn, France

As I mentioned, Tarn has a rich, traditional culture. The museums of Albi give a great insight into the history of the department, including the famous Musee Toulouse-Lautrec, dedicated to the local artist. The engineering miracle of the Millau Bridge which straddles the Tarn Gorge makes essential viewing from a Tarn gite, especially if you have hired a car to drive hundreds of metres above the ground.

The river which carved the huge Aveyron Gorge is a mecca for white water rafting and canoeing, with some of the best and most challenging stretches starting in the St Antonin area, which is a great place to take a Tarn gite or chateau if you intend to take to the river. Horse riding in Tarn is hugely popular too, with the open expanses of green open spaces lending themselves to both single day rides and long riding holidays. The mountain biking and walking in Tarn is also top class, with many marked trails across some of the most beautiful scenery to be found in the area.

There are some great golf courses in Tarn too. The course of Chateau Lasbordes in Albi is a particularly good course, but there are many excellent rounds to be had all across the department, so you will undoubtedly be able to find a good course in close proximity to your holiday rental gite or chateau in Tarn.

Places to holiday in Tarn, France

Cordes-sur-Ciel is probably the most magnificent fortified bastide towns, set proudly on a hilltop in the Tarn countryside. The huge, domineering chateau which dominates the skyline offers sweeping panoramic views across the department, and is a perfect place to start getting a feel for the department’s rich heritage and culture when you first arrive at your holiday rental in Tarn.

Wine connoisseurs who have taken a self catering property in Tarn must visit Gaillac, the village at the centre of the Tarn’s wine trade, and the local markets in most villages sell delicious local produce, especially the large bustling market at St Antonin.

Weather in Tarn, France

The walking, riding and cycling season in Tarn starts as early as April, as average temperatures are already around 20°C, rising to a daily average of around 30°C in August.

Flights to Tarn, France

Just forty five minutes from Toulouse International Airport (TLS), and five hours from Paris on the TGV, a self catering Tarn chateau or gite has become very accessible from the UK. easyJet, British Airways, BMI and Flybe all offer flights from the UK, so cheap flights to Tarn should not be hard.

Charming property, lovely position

5 of 5
Very well equipped, although I couldn't find a chopping board so had to chop on plates to make sure I did not scratch the kitchen surfaces. But otherwise I found everything we needed. It is a charming place to stay because the high ceilings give it a real sense of space which is also helped by the fact that it is not over-furnished. The view is somewhat obstructed by the trees in front but one could see for miles by looking to the right Our request for extra sheets was met promptly and efficiently and all emails were also answered promptly which is a great help when one is trying to synchronise dates and flights. We hope to go back.....

Comfortable, well-equipped with a good welcome.

5 of 5
The apartment is well equipped and also suitable for evenings indoors, with comfortable furniture and a DVD player. Situated with a stunning view yet convenient for walking into town over either of the beautiful bridges. Albi has a good range of shops and restaurants all of which are within walking distance of the apartment. Walking round town is extremely pleasant. The property was clean, spacious and well-maintained and the owners were welcoming and helpful. This was our second stay! Walking and sight-seeing out of town were easy; good road access and also a railway station make Albi a great location.

Beautiful rural gite

5 of 5
This was a beautiful peaceful gite in amazing surroundings. I called it 'My little bit of Paradise' It was spotlessly clean.well maintained and very well equipped. Richard and Jennie were the perfect hosts and nothing was to much trouble. The pool is wonderful to dip into in the heat and there is plenty of shade as well by the pool.. You can even sit on the seats built in the pool and take in the fantastic view.! There is plenty to do in the area but you will need a car. The Bastides surrounding the gite are well worth visiting although beware if your sat nav takes you into one as the roads are extremely narrow to take your car down (as we found out!) There are also beautiful villages, gardens and some of the bigger towns are worth exploring too. The property is perfect for 2 couples as the bedrooms are on separate levels so there is plenty of privacy. There is also a balcony which gives more space and somewhere to sit and just relax whilst deciding what to do next A wonderful gite in a stunning area which we would really like to return to before too long.
